Cee Lo Green: Its only rape if the person is conscious
Sep 1, 2014 10:34pm | Cosequence Of Sound

On Friday, Cee Lo Green was sentenced to three years of probation and 45 days of community service after pleading no contest to felony ecstasy possession, according to Las Vegas Review-Journal. Green was accused of furnishing ecstasy to a woman during a 2012 dinner in Los Angeles.

Green had sex with the woman, but maintained that it was consensual and prosecutors chose not to pursue rape charges. Yet in the face of criticism, Green felt compelled to defend himself.

In a series of bizarre tweets made over the weekend (via Billboard), Green offered his own definition of rape. If someone is passed out theyre not even WITH you consciously, he tweeted, adding, People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!

Green eventually deleted the tweets and sought to clarify his comments on Monday. He tweeted, “Let me 1st praise god for exoneration fairness & freedom! Secondly I sincerely apologize for my comments being taken so far out of context. I only intended on a healthy exchange to help heal those who love me from the pain I had already caused from this. Please forgive me as it was your support that got me thru this to begin with. I’d never condone the harm of any women. Thank you.”




Thom Yorke confirms collaboration with SBTRKT
Sep 1, 2014 8:32pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Back in 2012, SBTRKT dropped a remix of “Hold On” by an artist named Sisi BakBak. At the time, it was rumored that Thom Yorke was behind the mysterious moniker; now, two years later, Radiohead’s website has confirmed it as such.

The band’s W.A.S.T.E. store has been updated to include the Sisi BakBak remix. It’s listed under the “Thom Yorke / Atoms For Peace” section of the site.

Earth - Primitive and Deadly
Sep 1, 2014 5:24pm | Drowned In Sound

No band can defy the weight of expectation quite as spectacularly as Earth. Since Dylan Carlsons triumphantly melodic return after a nine-year hiatus with 2005's Hex, one can never quite be sure what to expect when pressing that play button on a new Earth recording for the first time - yet every time its calmly stunned. Every note emanating from the colossus of this latest incarnation is imbued with insurmountable feeling, total and utter restraint, and the strangest and strongest possible beauty. This isnt music you hear; this is most definitely music you feel. During the last three decades, Carlson has created his own intimate musical syntax, where notes exist outside of time, and sound inhabits somewhere outside of tangible space - the beginnings and endings are becoming interchangeable. The very way the controlled chaos of feedback works is from some chicken and egg paradox in its genesis. Is the guitar screaming at the amp, or the amp at the guitar? Although the band have travelled leagues beyond the legendarily amorphous drone of their formative years, integrating increasingly melodic tropes into the music, the question as to what extent they are playing - and not being played by - the music remains.

From a distance, Primitive and Deadly seems just that: a gentle return to the band's deadly primordial rock roots, inevitably emerging from their recent diversions to the dust-bowl Americana of Hex and the spiritual rif...


Esben and The Witch - A New Nature
Sep 1, 2014 5:24pm | Drowned In Sound

Its always strange to watch the development of a band from their first release onwards. Looking back to 2009, and remembering the skeletal foundations Esben and The Witch built on debut EP 33, its not only remarkable to see where they've ended up but also rather surprising. This was a band who, on their early releases, used frailty as their greatest strength. Now, with the Steve Albini-engineered A New Nature, the Brighton-based trio have refined their sound to a point where it is leaner, but more powerful, than ever.

No Dog, previously released on a split LP with Thought Forms earlier this year, is a case in point. Rattling along with propulsive bass and thunderous drums, only Thomas Fishers guitar really screams of subtlety. Even Rachel Daviess fragile vocals sound tougher, as if theres a fresh fire burning deep inside her. Her declaration that I am no dog, I am a wolf is an almost frightening cry of intent, of significance and of domination.

This is a welcome change from a group that, despite their obvious talents as songwriters and musicians, have occasionally sounded brittle as opposed to resolute. Indeed, 2013s Wash the Sins Not Only the Face displayed a band sounding somewhat trapped between focused arrangements and dreamy atmospherics, failing to convincingly bridge the, often wide, gap between the two. On A New Nature these concerns are rendered mute by the dexterity of the trios songwriting.

FaltyDL - In the Wild
Sep 1, 2014 5:23pm | Drowned In Sound

In the Wild is undoubtedly the most experimental and compositionally complex of Drew Lustman's records and those coming to this album expecting to hear a continuation of Hardcourage will be very much surprised. Undoubtedly taking notes from the likes of Daedelus and Flying Lotus, as well as other Ninja Tune label-mates, FaltyDL has made a sprawling record that is truly awesome in the traditional sense of the word.

During the course of In the Wild Lustman meanders through a whole host of genres from jazz through to jungle, techno and hip hop with varying degrees of efficacy, making the record extremely hard to define. Whereas Hardcourage could be described as primarily a house record, this album is formed from a whole host of fragments and ideas which come together to make something altogether more abstract than anything previously released.



'Vast' is the word to describe it. With 17 tracks in total and a run time of approximately an hour, In the Wild comes across as daunting and at times messy. The journey begins with Aquí, Port Lligat which is the first of five tracks on the record which come in at under two minutes long, lulling you in to a daze with its unnerving slow-burning ambience. The second track, New Haven cuts through the ambience with a plodding beat which propels the song forward effortlessly, making way for a clockwork rhythm section, sparse pianos and a whole host of bizarre n...

Stream: Robert Plants new album lullaby and The Ceaseless Roar
Sep 1, 2014 5:16pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Robert Plant will release his latest solo album, lullaby and The Ceaseless Roar, on September 9th via Nonesuch Records. In anticipation, the album is streaming in full at NPR.org.

Self-produced by Plant, the 11-track effort was co-written alongside his band, The Sensational Space Shifters. According to a press release, lullaby is a “celebratory record, powerful, gritty, African, Trance meets Zep.”

Plant said he initially doubted his his writing ability after lengthy touring behind 2010s Band of Joy, which featured songs penned mostly by others. “After I came back to England, I wondered, could I actually write?” he said in a press release. “Did I have anything left? Not knowing and not being really convinced I had anything of my own because Id been singing other peoples songs for a long time.”

The trick, he explained, was to turn his focus inward, “In the beginnings of my efforts to write songs, when I first met Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, I was just trying to join in with the times and what was going on and use what Id learned from Dion and Howlin Wolf,” he said. “Now I have a whole index, an absolute rainbow, of influences. I need to talk about whats going on in my life, in my lap, speaking from my experience; its far more honest and much more appropriate.”

The album is preceded by “Rainbow”. Below, watch the correspon...
